No Roads, No Cars, Just Boats

Most of us town-and-city dwellers spend our days pounding hard, paved ground. But in Giethoorn, Holland, residents float through canals. 

Built without roads, a series of waterways and bridges connect the town’s 2,400 residents. 

This incredible aquatic infrastructure has even earned the town the nickname “Little Venice.” 

We have to admit, a life without asphalt, gridlock, and the DMV sound pretty enchanting.

Eco Farming

“Dutch farmers have become experts in getting the most out of every hectare. Increasingly, they’re doing so sustainably,” says David Attenborough: “It’s entirely possible for us to apply both low-tech and high-tech solutions to produce much more food from much less land ... 

As we improve our approach to farming, we’ll start to reverse the land grab that we’ve been pursuing ever since we began to farm.”

Eco Office

The Edge, in Amsterdam, is officially the greenest office building in the world. It's also the testing ground for a radical, highly connected new way of working, where employees have no set workspaces and can dial in their individual climate and lighting preferences via an app. Businessweek's Tom Randall got a first-hand look at the inner workings of this office of the future.

Eco Community

When architect Julius Taminiau and his girlfriend needed more space for their growing family, they left their tiny Amsterdam flat and bought what was the best deal in town at the time, an old houseboat in a floating community. 

They decided to sell the boat (for 1 euro) to make way for their dream houseboat.

Climate Change

About one-third of the Netherlands lies below sea level. 

Since the 1950s, the country has spent billions beefing up its flood defenses, and one method involves building polders. 

CNA’s Tang See Kit explains what polders are and visited the polder area of Delfland, where everything is 3m to 4m below sea level.
